UPVC Door Security
High Security Door Cylinders
Lock bumping a UPVC door lock can take around 5 seconds for a burglar to gain entry to your property.
- A 10 year old child can open a UPVC door with a bump key
- Bump keys can be bought by anyone from a number of websites in the UK for as little as £2
- When lock bumping has occurred on your property there is no sign of forced entry or damage to the lock meaning insurance companies are wary in paying out
- Our UAP cylinders will protect you 100% against lock bumping. We guarantee this for life of the lock
- All our UAP cylinders we supply and fit come with 5 years parts & labour warranty
The truth is that the majority of security cylinders on the market today are not Anti-Snap so thieves will not even attempt to pick or bump the lock, they will move straight onto snapping the cylinder.
Lock snapping is a problem that most security door cylinders have failed to address. The principle is easy to enough to understand & apply pressure to the lock cylinder and it will snap.
The problem this leads to is that all of the other security measures that you thought were keeping you safe; the dead-bolts, anti-lift bars etc. are all rendered useless as lock snapping focuses only on the cylinder and exploiting its inherent weaknesses.

locked keys inside when taking bins out like an idiot, low cost came out in around 20 mins, very grateful
Just had new tenants moving into the property, and needed all four locks replacing today, mainly for security. The locksmith was above and beyond he was around before midday and changed all the locks and cut all the tenants a key, all the locks came with a 5 year warranty. He was able to do a security survey as well to make sure all the locks on the doors and windows were safe, thank you for your reliable service and speedy turn around time. I will keep this number for the future. Thank you
Sorry only just had time to review you
As I had such an old lock on my wardrobe I needed to have a special bespoke lock ordered in. Low Cost Locksmiths were very good for keeping me updated on where my new lock was and when it would be able to be fitted. They were very helpful and professional in helping me get a lock that would both work and still be in keeping with the old style of my wardrobe. I have recommended them to a friend of mine who also has old furniture for when her lock ever needs replacing. Many thanks
Thanks for your review 🙂
I have had concerns about my young children climbing up and falling out of my very old bathroom windows as my youngest is very accident prone!! I now have fabulous new locks installed by one of your highly skilled guys. Can't thank you enough, Aleena
Hi Aleena, thank you for your kind review and we're glad that you have peace of mind knowing that your children are safe. Tom
Had you out today to change my 8 upvc window handles took a little bit longer than expected but all in all a good job. Thanks Simon
Hi Simon, thanks for using our service.
Highly Secure Euro Cylinder
The high security Euro Cylinder is, as you would expect, Anti-Bump, Anti-Pick, Anti-Drill and Zero Lift. However, the feature which really sets this apart is the Anti-Snap feature. The Euro Cylinder will keep you safe from all of these methods of attack and replacing your cylinder is a quick, easy and inexpensive way to purchase peace of mind.
Ordinarily, companies develop locks and cylinders that can withstand lock bumping but there are not many that have thought about or looked at lock snapping. This is because creating an Anti-Snap cylinder is not an easy thing to do. Unfortunately, thieves and miscreants know this and so lock snapping is quickly becoming the number one way that they enter premises.
Recently there has been a wave of lock snapping attacks, so many so that it has caught the attention of the media. As a result of the coverage, many people are aware of this threat but are either unaware of what they can do about it, worried that the solution will cost a small fortune or are blissfully ignorant in the belief that their security lock will automatically be Anti-Snap.
Resist lock snapping and bumping
Your UPVC door is more than likely protected by nothing more than a £5 lock
The Anti-Bump, Anti-Pick, Anti-Drill, Zero Lift and Anti-Snap Euro Cylinder is specifically designed to keep you safe. The solution to the lock snapping problem seems simple but is the result of ingenious research and testing. Most lock cylinders snap in such a way that leaves the locking mechanism useless, causing the door to swing right open. An Anti-Snap cylinder is mostly snap resistant but if it were to snap at all, it would snap in a way that kept the locking mechanism, and your safety, intact.
Of course, all of the Euro Cylinders are six pin and each conform to EN1303:2005 British Standard Kitemark, easily one of the most recognised and revered safety hallmarks in the world.
